About the Book
Their differences are many, yet the cities of Kiev and Lviv are both unmistakably Ukrainian, awash with a rich and intriguing history. Each offers its own perspective on this mighty yet misunderstood country - a land where the memories of a turbulent past are giving way to a celebration of tradition and a growing hope for the future.
